Teaching

My primary goal in teaching is conveying knowledge in the best possible manner such that each student gains a clear picture of the content and is able to apply the learned methods both in practice and in theory. You can download my teaching statement here. The feedback from students on my teaching has always been very positive and motivated me to further enhance my teaching. For instance, I was recently awarded the best teaching award of the student council of the Faculty of Economics and Business (“Student Council Award for Excellent Teaching”) for my undergraduate course on Financial Derivatives and Risk Management. Lecture evalutations are available upon request.

Lectures: In recent years I have taught lectures at the Goethe University Frankfurt, its Graduate School of Economics, Finance, and Managment (GSEFM) and the Goethe Business School (GBS). In the winter term 2022 I will start teaching at the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM).

Thesis Supervision: I have supervised more than 30 bachelor’s and master’s theses at the Goethe University Frankfurt in Actuarial Science, Asset Pricing, Climate Finance, Environmental Economics, Portfolio Optimization, and Risk Management.

Tutorials: I used to work as a teaching assistant at the Goethe University Frankfurt, where I gave tutorials in finance courses such as Capital Markets and Asset Pricing, Credit Risk, Dynamic Asset Allocation and Applications, and Financial Decisions and Markets. Before I started my PhD at the Goethe University I had been working as a teaching assistant at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Kaiserslautern for two years. I used to give tutorials in Higher Mathematics I, II, and III, Applied Mathematics: Stochastic Methods, and Statistics for Economists, among others.
